The way I’m combating the knowledge that the toy cars break soon after purchase:
Q: “So, how long do the cars last?”
A: “Well, they’ll run for four to six hours on one double A battery. I get rechargable batteries, so then they last forever.”
Q: “And how durable are the toys?”
A: “These tracks are virtually indestructible! You can trip over them, step on them. They’re great for carpet–even shag carpet! You don’t need a wooden board like with other train sets.”
I say, I have found my calling! Morals be damned.
